We are all thinking about you guys and are so sorry for your loss, wish we could be there for you. Dee and I always had a special relationship from childhood and that never changed. No matter what, she always had a smile and a warm welcome for everyone she met. She will always hold a special place in our hearts and in those of anyone that knew her.

We loved Dee and loved seeing her smile. We will remember her as she was the last time we saw her - dancing at Brandy's wedding until the music stopped. She was very much loved and very well cared for by her family. We will all miss her.
Love to you all!

My heart goes out to you all. If I can do anything for you, let me know. Frankie loved Dee and i'd like to think they are hanging out together now laughing and making jokes about us all.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Diana at TCU, and she was truly one of the sweetest, happiest people I've ever known, and had a heart of gold. God's speed, Diana!

We were so sorry to hear about Diana's passing. We know her earthly struggle is now over and is free from pain. She is at peace in the presence of her Lord and Savior. The Sawdon family is an example for showing others the true meaning of "family." Our prayers are with you during this difficult time. We know our late step-father, Bob, always enjoyed his conversations with Diana during their many trips into South Bend.

So sorry to hear of Dee's passing. I will always remember her positive outlook and sweet smile. We had good times shopping going to get something to eat with our youth group. I'm sorry I lost touch with her and the family when I moved away. I know she's smiling at this moment with that special light in her eyes.
